It's hard to tell from the photos. But one looks to have a larger diameter piston actuator. If that means it has a larger piston. Then you would have to decide on how much mechanical advantage you want. A 6 pot is going to need more fluid flow and would provide quite a lot of mechanical advantage. So I'd start with the larger piston and go from there.

 

The flip side is that maybe the larger piston master is more suited to a bike with two calipers. If that's the case. Then the smaller piston master would be a better place to start.

The berringer 6 pot supermoto caliper only requires a 12mm master.  I got the "kit" from berringer for my KTM and their 6pot caliper came with the 12mm bore radial master.  Also for my other bike with a braking caliper, it has less pistons but larger diameter I went with a magura 195 13mm bore.  Brake feel is softer but still pretty good.  The 6 pot berringer uses small pistons and doesnt need a larger bore master to move the fluid.

The Beringer BRO12 and BR12 have 17,5mm piston.

 

Wow you are right Vega!  When i ordered it i must have been misinformed!  I stand corrected!  Thanks for catching me on that.  Im amazed its that big.  I just read a description that says it offers a soft pull.  Mine is solid as a rock!  I guess i just figured the 12 was a 12mm bore.  odd way to number it.
